Romelu Lukaku has fun at expense of Peter Odemwingie as West Bromwich Albion beat Sunderland
West Bromwich Albion 2 Sunderland 1
Sunday 24 February 2013
Steve Clarke is finally able to laugh at the transfer saga surrounding Peter Odemwingie nearly a month after his striker drove south to Queen's Park Rangers on deadline day in an unsuccessful attempt to force through a move away from West Bromwich Albion.
Clarke revealed after his side's 2-1 home win over Sunderland that Odemwingie's team-mates have been ribbing the Nigeria international relentlessly, including making him dress up in a QPR strip for a team meeting. "It was good banter – that is how dressing rooms survive," Clarke said.
The player might not be in such high spirits after he was introduced with just three minutes left on Saturday, replacing Romelu Lukaku, who had scored both Albion's goals and may well keep his place. Stéphane Sessègnon grabbed one back with 11 minutes to play but West Bromwich held on.
